Since it started airing, the K-Drama has gained praise from netizens worldwide. In particular, Lee Do Hyun earned attention for his unreal transformation within the show.

A moment from the most recent episode gained attention after Lee Do Hyun hilariously mentioned the idol in a scene.

In the clip shared on social media, Lee Do Hyun’s character is talking with his mother while she is doing work. Suddenly out of nowhere, Lee Do Hyun asked his mother why she was so pretty.


Unsurprisingly, his mom was very happy, especially as Lee Do Hyun continued to say that she was even prettier than those on the television.


Out of nowhere, while praising Ra Mi Ran’s visuals, Lee Do Hyun said, “You’re even prettier than IU.”


When the clip was posted, netizens couldn’t get over the unexpected mention of the idol. While IU’s influence is undoubtedly huge, seeing it in a Netflix series was still surprising.

Yet, although it was funny enough to see IU be mentioned, netizens loved it even more as Lee Do Hyun starred alongside the idol and showcased their (sometimes heartbreaking) chemistry in the hit K-Drama Moon Hotel.

The show has already become a hot topic worldwide, with netizens praising Lee Do Hyun’s unreal acting throughout, along with the phenomenal supporting cast. Considering her influence and popularity, along with Lee Do Hyun’s history with the idol, it’s not surprising that IU was mentioned.
